Scientific Cooling Classes and Tools of the Trade
SMARTFLOW Scientific Cooling Class teaches the physics of heat transfer as it relates to Injection Mold Cooling. Tools of the Trade Calculators are available on the Smartflow-usa.com web site to help molders determine Turbulent Flow Rates and the cooling environment needed to achieve maximum cooling efficiency.
Injection Mold Cooling represents 70 to 80% of Cycle Time. Consistent part quality, faster cycle times and increased profits result from optimized cooling efficiency.
2-Day Course Objectives:
Learn energy principles in relation to specific polymers.
Understand Heat Transfer and Energy Flow effects on part quality and cycle time.
Create Heat Budget and Balancing using Energy Flow calculations.
Understand Reynolds Number’s relationship to Turbulent Flow.
Learn Turbulent Flow’s impact on sustainable molding practices.
Study the 3 R’s of Scientific Cooling to develop and maintain efficient cooling setup and processes.
Review coolant delivery and distribution principles.
Discover water chemistry’s effect on cooling efficiency.
Discuss mold maintenance techniques related to mold cooling.
Participate in “Hands-On” exercises to reinforce learning objectives.
Receive an introduction to advanced methods - Flow Simulation, Thermal Imaging, and High Temperature Cooling Systems
After successful class completion with a minimum test score of 70%, you will earn a Scientific Cooling Certificate. You will have the tools to implement Scientific Cooling principles in your molding process.
